Project and Time Management

We are exploring the functionality and applications of several time and project management models to be incorporated into the nStudy software. Our goal is to operationally define trace data and forms of feedback that support learners to self-regulate the macro scale of work on projects (e.g., a term paper). Drawing on theories of self-regulated learning and motivation, we will design features that trace planning and work on project activities to generate data about work on the project that can be analyzed and relayed as a learning analytics dashboard. We will design and research the effects of analytics intended to guide learners to adapt project management routines across multiple projects and assignments in authentic learning contexts.
